Bug Description

Binary package hint: bind9

The manpage of host (1:9.4.1-P1-3ubuntu1 / gutsy) states:

       "The -t option is used to select the query type. type can be any
       recognised query type: CNAME, NS, SOA, SIG, KEY, AXFR, etc. When no
       query type is specified, host automatically selects an appropriate
       query type. By default it looks for A records, but if the -C option was
       given, queries will be made for SOA records, and if name is a
       dotted-decimal IPv4 address or colon-delimited IPv6 address, host will
       query for PTR records."

But host querie A, AAAA and MX as default, not only A.
